Want It Wednesday-Not Books

More Want It Wednesday, only this time it's not books! Sometimes in my blog travels, I come across items that aren't books, but I still love and wish I had. These are various things that I've found while reading blogs that I now want for myself.



Ok, seriously, how cute are these shoes??? I saw them on Meg Cabot's website last week and I have been lusting after them ever since! If only I had a good place to wear them. As cute as they would look at my school visits for summer reading, I'm afraid I'd end up tripping over myself. (Which surely would entertain the teens!) I just had to share with everyone, because they deserve to be shared.



This Twilight thing has gotten so out of control, there's now Twilight perfume! I guess that's what happens when you can't think of anything else to market the movie. Yes, Harry Potter has Chocolate Frogs and Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, but at least those were in the books. The perfume-not so much. But I must admit, as silly as I think it is, it's in a pretty cute bottle. I just hope it smells good, or my library will be full of funky smelling teens!







Thanks to Lauren at Shooting Stars Mag for blogging about this today. I too am offically in love with this coin purse. How cute is this thing?? You can find them in all sorts of colors too, which is so much fun.

  5. Meg's shoes are adorable--gotta love Betsey Johnson--her designs are so cute and fun! And the Twilight perfume...oh my god. They've gone way too far on merchandising. Next they'll be selling TWILIGHT underwear....and toothpaste....and chips and apple-shapes...LOL

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
